Three partners entered into business but lost their goods in a storm at sea. They now behave according to what they lost.
A Bat, Thorn Bush, and Seagull enter into a business partnership to sell fabric provided by the Thorn Bush and bronze provided by the Gull using money provided by the Bat. All three lost their business in a shipwreck so the Bat now avoids daylight and his creditors while the Gull searches the sea for his bronze and the Thorn Bush snags fabric looking for his products.
